Just your standard SF itinerary help thread for a LA hound...
I'm going to be in the Bay Area 12/27-29, staying at a friend's house in Mountain View. I plan to take the Caltrain up to SF on 12/27 and hang out at Ferry Building Marketplace most of the day (since the Farmers Market is that day too). Here are some of the places I plan to hit up (prepared food-wise):
The Slanted Door
Also planning a 2nd possible day in SF, and this is where help is most needed. I'm most likely taking the train up, and walking around in the city. So I would like to choose an area where various places are densely populated to make walking around easier. I was thinking about Swan Oyster Depot, but it's a bit further and nothing else is really close by. Or I can go to Mission and visit Tartine Bakery, Mission Chinese Food, etc. I also put places like Marlowe and Little Skillet on my radar because they're so close to the Caltrain station.
Might even be in the city on 12/29, because some friends want to try Burma Superstar (so do I). Any suggestion is greatly appreciated. But I was trying to prioritize places we don't have or have better versions of here in LA. Oh, and I do want to try 1-2 more $$$$ place(s) for dinner during the trip. Choices so far are Benu, Manresa, and Wakuriya (since latter 2 are closer to where I'm staying).
Thanks again. Sorry if this was a bit TL:DR or needy :(
EDITED: Are there are any must-visit places in the South Bay? I made a map of to-dine places, and only 4 of them are in the area (and all $$$$ places - Manresa & Wakuriya, as well as Baume and Plumed Horse, but don't consider the latter 2 must-try).
